    Sinking feeling

    a milky winter's day
    the whole world feels like foundering
    we're swimming, pliant cattle in a ford,
    chewing the cud,
    which almost looks as if we
    argued with each other

    blurry buildings float...

    Shooting at shadows

    No crown of thorns for me
    but a gleaming halo of crop marks
    hovering around my winter face
    that hours of two-inch-bleeds
    have transformed into an anaemic mask

    I drag my feet through crowed...

    Da capo

    Remember – at that age
    when everything is stumbling words,
    inquiring minds, self-righteousness,
    we asked, 'What did you do in thirty-nine?'
    Our granddad winked, then grinned,
    he always had his...

    No pilot

    Sleet sweeps over
    black-washed sidewalks
    dark blots with hunched shoulders
    trudge behind dogs that look like rats
    our windows, fogged up,
    blur another sleepy
    November evening,
    curling...

    The fragrance of stones

    grins and insouciance,
    tanned shoulders shrugging
    under swaying plane trees,
    black as thunder;
    salt on their leaves,
    and salt on our lips;
    a singer croons about love,
    or loss, or sinking ships...

    Weekend with Rimbaud

    rolling hills, and roundabouts,
    and fields, young shamrock green,
    and clouds bulging with rain,
    but which don’t burst, not yet,
    just float indifferently
    across a sky they shrink down
    to a less...

    tremble a love poem

    suspended time expanding in a sigh
    and it feels like morning o’clock
